Encapsulation: A Revealing Look at a Simple Solution
October 18, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm$35
As part of Octavofest, Northeast Ohio’s annual celebration of Book and Paper Arts, ICA – Art Conservation is offering a hand-son encapsulation workshop. Encapsulation is a simple and cost effective way to protect works on paper from wear and tear due to handling. It can also help keep fragile pieces together and make family documents accessible. This workshop will teach participants how to encapsulate their own paper objects safely.
Proper materials, environment and handling methods will be discussed. The end result will be a sample set of various encapsulation techniques for future reference.
